Re: Dunn And His Long Term Contract
Scraps.. all I can say is "wow". But basically, what you wrote is S crap)
Dunn isnt signing anywhere for the league minimum. But nice try at humor.
Here is a list of your mistakes..
1) Bagwell will not play and take up a roster spot. He is done.
2) Willy T has hit that good in the minors. In fact he skipped AAA. He will get better ans learn to manage the strike zone better. It was not a career year. It was just his 1st.
3) Jason Lane.. INJURIES?? Based on what??? 2005 was his 1st full season in the bigs but not because of injuries.
4) Biggio didnt have a bad year and 2005 was Burke's 1st full year in the Bigs. Whre did he get his ample opportunity in the majors?
5) Ensberg... Late bloomer that is the real deal. Had a wrist injury in the playoffs that effected his swing.
6) Berkman.. has never NEVER had an injury past, DO YOU JUST MAKE THIS CRAP UP? He is not just a solid All-Star, he is forging towards a HOF career. Top 5 hitter in the NL.
7) Wilson.. hitting in an offensive ballpark , but his OBP will go down? I doubt it. He aint Pujols, but he will hit .270, 30, 90-100 with a .350 OBP. Thats just fine and an offensive upgrade no doubt. Here is the guy with an injury concern and you dont even mention it. UNREAL.
8) Ausmus... great pitcher's catcher. Ausmus was signed for 1 reason, Clemens.
9) Everett... Not a punch and judy hitter at all. He just doesnt hit. When he does he hits for doubles.
If YOU are counting at home you will see that Pitching and Defense win. The Astros have both and the offense will be better than 2005 when they won the NL pennant. The Reds have offense but NO pitching or defense.
Oswalt and Pettitte made it thru the 2005 season without injury. Pettitte's elbow is fine and Oswalts hamstring is fixed. No worries.
The bullpen is one of the best, although Lidge is a question. How will he handle it? We are all 2 months away from finding out.
Questions... yep.. every single team in MLB has em and always have. Some less than others. The Astros will once again be one of the best 5 teams in MLB. Can you say that about the Reds?
I wonder if you just sat down and made all that crap up or do you really believe it ? Either way, that was just sad and showed no real effort at trying to keep from looking like a very un-intelligent fan.
Rabid Astros Fan !
